We were familiar with Precious Moments figurines but never collected them or know their history. We do now! ... and it is inspiring and touching. Plan to spend some time here and take in some of the stories behind Sam Butcher and his family.

A nice surprise. My wife has been collecting Precious Moments figurines for 30+ years. We are glad we could walk through this wonderful chapel and park to learn more about Sam Butcher’s inspiration for his famous figurines.

I'm sorry to say this but the whole place seems well out-of-date and a total time warp. The restaurant was closed and had been for quite some time. The gift shop was just average and nothing special. Gardens were beautiful.

We were told about this place from a friend. But by the time we found it it was closed. And that's no easy task. It's WAY off the road. But we did get pictures of the fountain. And they were beautiful.

There was a restaurant inside the complex with a limited menu (think burgers) and hours. Unsure of the hours of operation on the chapels.
